'    London, July 15.���������The demand  by English aeronautical experts  -v-that the government send a great  "fleet of aeroplanes to attack the  Krupp gun works at Essen had a  ^partial answer today.     Despat:  kches from   Paris reported  that  luring the night several French  iviators  made a reconnaisance  )ver Essen.     The reconnoitring  frips are" believed to have been  preliminary   to   an   attempt to  Lombard the Krupp works from  the air.

The British Zeppelin  London, July 15.���������The annual  accounts of the British clock  yards expenditures for lsst year  reveal for the first time to the  public that airships, to offset the  German Zeppelin, to the number  of sixteen were in the course of  construction in 1914.  Turkey Wants  Separate Peace  Rome, July 16.���������That Turkey  has made overtures for a separate peace is confirmed by information from a diplomatic source,  but the negotiations are not being carried on in Switzerland as  reported and the Turkish government has not sent emissaries  there. Instead the Turkish diplomats in the Balkan State are  indirectly communicating with  representatives of the Entente  powers who are authorized to act  as intermediaries and fix conditions of peace.

U. S. Government Takes  Over Wireless Station  Washington, July 15.--The  government have taken over the  Sayville, L. I., wireless station,  the only remaining privately-  owned direct means of communication between the United States  and Germany.  Secretary Daniel announces  that Captain Billiard, in charge  of.'���������������������������.the naval radio, has taken  over the station and would continue its operation.  Miners Return to Work  London, July 16 It is believed  certain that some of* the miners  on strike in the western district  of South Wales have agreed to  resume work today.  S. S. Chelohsin appeared on  her best behavior this time by  arriving at the wharf six o'clock  Sunday morning. Our townspeople certainly do prefer that  our weekly steamer arrives at a  time that will make it easier in  the future to spend the day of  rest in manner more appropriate  and congenial than heretofore,  when we would look for the boat  nearly all day and when at last  it arrived, spend some time at  the wharf.  Among the arrivals were Mr.  and Mrs. G. Lindsell and son,  the Misses Olive Kilpatrick,  Ethel Carlisle, Addieand Mildred  Gibson, Marjorie and Dorothy  Clayton.'  The outgoing passengers were  Miss W. Pecknold and Mr. Geo.  Hanson.  Miss Pecknold left the valley  after a stay of nearly two years.  She has had charge of the Lower  Bella Coola school and has, during her stay, made a great many  friends who regret her departure.  We all wish her God speed.  George Hanson is off for a visit  to the Panama Exposition and  also to attend a deaf-mute convention at Vancouver. There is  where action will talk.  We welcome back to Bella  Coola the Lindsell family, which  has stayed at Victoria since  early in the year. They will  again take up their quarters on  their farm above Hagensborg.  Miss Carlisle and 'Miss. Kilpatrick find the climate, scenery and  other attractions of Bella Coola  such that they prefer to spend  their well- earned vacation'here.  Misses Marjorie and Dorothy  Clayton enjoy Bella Coola better  than any other place because here  is .their home which they find  doubly attractive after spending  a year away at scoool.  Misses Addieand Mildred Gibson, return after spending a few  weeks with friends and relations  in Victoria and Vancouver.  Quite a number of government  officials pooled their means last  week, hired a launch at the mouth  of the inlet and came in here on  Thursday the Sth inst. We suspect they combine business with  pleasure. It is their business  that sends them here, but it is  pleasure jthey reap by staying  amid our beautiful surroundings.  We shall name them in the order  of their weight, beginning with  the heaviest:  Mr. R. 0. Jennings, road-superintendent of the largest district  in the province, is here to see  that the public works carried on  here is performed properly. His  smiling countenance will not  strike terror to those who execute  his commands. He found everything satisfactory.  C. H. Homer, assessor and collector, called to see if the improvements made last year would  warrant him in raising the taxes.  It is more difficult for us to  surmise what F. McCrea, timber  inspector, is looking for as he  failed to inform us. But as he  passed our office we saw he was  in a hurry,.so he no doubt had  good reason for coming.  But A. H. Tomlinson, provincial horticulturist, is one of the  men who could find something to  do if he stayed here all the time.  And wehavethrough ourcolumns  tried to convince him that he  should do so;   but  other places  PROVINCIAL ELECTION  Your influence and support is respectfully requested.  T. D. PATTULLO.  Liberal candidate for Prince Ruport Riding.  Mr. J. E. Merryfield is not a  government official, but he would  like to boss them to some extent  so he came in with them in order  to size them up. He is the Conservative candidate for the  Dominion House and is here to  see if the fences are in such 'order, that no Liberal candidate  will break into the preserves.  While the sockeye run on the  whole has been very good for the  season, this week has seen a  falling off in the catch, presumably on account of the cloudy  and cool weather.        :  Wesley Grummett was one of  the'outgoing passengers last  Sunday. It is rumored he will  on his return bring an automobile with him.  The annual school-meetings  were held at the different school-  houses last week. The trustees  elected were as follows : At  Hagensborg, H. 0. Hanson; at  Lower Bella Coola, John Widsten  and John Jorgenson; and at Mackenzie. H. G. Anderson and C.  Tucker.  Wm. Sutherland came in last  Saturday from Victoria on his  lately purchased gasolene launch.  It is a large, powerful craft and  we hope it will prove to fill a long  felt want in the community.  Jacob J. Lunos, who has been  confined at the hospital from an  illness of long standing, is so far  recovered that he left for his  home at Noosatsum last Thursday.  We regret to inform our readers that our popular physician,  Dr. W. E. Bavis, has handed in  his resignation to the hospital  board to take effect next month.  It has been suggested that Ed  Oien did not come to Bella Coola  to get something to eat as surmised in our last issue, but rather  to get someone to cook and rumor has it that he has engaged  the best cook in the valley.  The South Ben tin k Cattle Co.,  which is operating a cattle ranch  at the head of the South Bentink  Arm, has sent out to its ranch a  consignment of some cattle and  two horses this week.  Rumor  has   it   that   the  Ocean   Falls  Company  wil  new  resume operations in the near  future. If such should prove true  it would be of great assistance  to the many new settlers along  this part of the coast to be'enabled to obtain work during the  fall and winter months.  Mr. A.  H. Tomlinson, provincial  agriculturist,   who   on   his  tour of  the district assigned to  him, is here to examine into andj  direct the  methods of   farming}  carried  on,  issued on   Saturday j������  last an invitation   to  the people j a  c  ment for experiments as to what  the soil together with climate  and other conditions prevalent  in the valley can be made to produce profitably, and also to demonstrate to the farmers the  best methods of farming. Mr.  Grant has, under the direction  of Mr. Tomlinson, had this work  in charge and has proven to be  the best man in the place for the  position.  In response to Mr. Tomlinson's  invitation a large number of  peoj.le of both sexes and all ages  gathered on the spacious lawn  in front of Mr. Grant's residence.  Everybody was made welcome  by the ever present geniai host  and by thft less active but equally  kind hostess. In passing allow  us to state that our attention up-  m arrival was first attracted by  the beautiful border of flowers  surrounding the lawn, the  smoothness of the grounds and  by the fine grove of maples protecting the lawn and the residence from the prevailing westerly winds.  As if in accord with the occasion the weather put on its best  aspects and everybody was in a  holiday mood.. 'Mr. Tomlinson  conducted the people through the  orchard, fields and plots,,explain-  ing to them how to care for the  trees, what different grasses  were best adapted for the district. Showing also the fine  growth obtained of the "roots,  cereals, etc., raised in a great  variety in the several plots.  The scribe has not the ability  or training necessary to do justice to the work carried on, and  has therefore exacted the promises of both Mr. Tomlinson and  Mr. Grant that they will in a  short time give our readers a detailed account of the most interesting features of the work done  by the government at this place.  In making the rounds of the farm  we must admit of a feeling of  regret that our duties prevented  us from joining some ladies and  children who found the attractions of the raspberry patch tco  alluring to be resisted; but this  feeling was of short duration because when our rounds were  ended and we arrived at the  house again, the greensward was  soon decked with attractive  viands, such as new potatoes,  sandwiches, cakes and tea.  Everybody showed by their actions that the tour of the farm  had sharpened the appetites to  such an extent that Mrs. Grant  found her larder considerably  depleted after the onslaught.  The young people did not neglect  the facilities which the lawn and  surroundings lent to engage in  games of various kinds. The  gathering was thoroughly enjoyed and proved both instructive  and entertaining, and it is our  hope that others of a like nature  be held as we are fully resolved  that if nothing seriously interferes we shall be thej'e. ,  C    GUwrrlt Nuttr?  of the valley to assemble at the j  farm  of  Mr. S.

SATURDAY, JULY 17, 1915.  Farmers! Do Your Part.  In  these "enlightened    times  when knowledge of a practical  - kind can be found on any subject entering into our daily lives,  .   it behooves every person to gath-  ��������� er as much useful information as  his opportunities will allow and  to use it in a manner to increase  -efficiency in his calling.'    It is  not for our own benefit only that  we should so conduct ourselves.  We must not lose sight of the  fact that we are also responsible  to our fellowmen for the way we  .do our part of the great world's  work. ~ '  While-we owe a great deal to  ourselves as individuals,, we also  owe as much to our fellow men,  and none of. these' duties should  be neglected: -We are.cogs in a>  great machine, and if a cog does  not perform its duty properly the  whole machine suffers.  This may, likelj', seem a high-  sounding preamble to a humble  appeal to our neighbors to do the  right thing. Butremember that  our everyday duties seemingly  so humble and unimportant are  nevertheless not trivial. .  We would like to call the attention of our farmers to one  point where they fail to do what  ' is right.    The government in its  endeavor to increase the products  of   the   farm, sent here,   last  spring,   free of all  expense, a  pedigreed bull for the improvement of the dairy herd.    It is an  established fact that a good sire  is half the herd, and this half is  given the farmers of this valley  free of charge, and yet, we are  'Sorry to say, they do not avail  themselves of the opportunity to  increase the yield of their stock.  And not that alone, but contrary  to law they allow scrub bulls to  roam at large to the detriment  of the few who are intelligent  enough to be anxious to build up  their herd.  The Government is spending  large sums of money every year  to enable' the  farmers  to  help  themselves,   and   we   consider  money spent in that way to be  of more use than when it is spent  in giving work to those in need  of earning money.    We should  make it our business to see that  this money is not spent in vain.  We should co-operate with the  government when it tries to develop our resources.  Now in the matter referred to  above; locate the sire at different  stations at stated periods in the  valley and make the use of it for  which it was brought here. Intern the domestic enemy of improved stock (the scrub) and  thus help to increase our resources and promote the common  welfare.  -  o     o     o     o     o  Relief Asked For.  While employees of the government are being paid salaries  as high and higher than in the  flourishing times of tw7o years or  more ago, people just as able and  just as deserving are appealing  ill vain for employment at wages  a fraction of those the government appropriates to itself and  subordinates.  It is time that the people of.  this province wake up'to a realization of the fact that resources  must be husbanded and not recklessly squandered as they have  been heretofore,'and anyone  silent on this subject is not a  friend "to his country. Read the  following resolution passed at a  meeting of ratepayers  held   in  | MAGIC  READ THE  axvwPOWDER  Ward seven, Vancouver, and  judge if it is not proper for the  more fortunate in society to make  sacrifices to help the needy. Let  the government show its consideration for the people by retrenching. The resolution calling upon. Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.  P., to act was as follows:  "Whereas there is at the  present time great distress in the  city of Vancouver owing to unemployment, we have already  appealed to _the -provincial authorities and assistance given by  them is "entirely inadequate, we  appeaL to the Dominion government for some assistance to provide work. The city's resources  have been exhausted, that' immediate relief is necessary to  alleviate the sufferings of the  British families now residing in  the city of Vancouver, and we  pray that you place this matter  immediately before the proper  authorities in Ottawa as it is  very urgent."  o     o     o     o     o  One Effect of Slow Progress.  What at the same time is Britain's glory is also her weakness:  her   unpreparedness   for   this  struggle.     A  truly  democratic  country, her people had no designs upon   its   neighbors,  the  people desired only to carry on  its pursuits.in"peace, and did not  suspect to any great degree that  other nations  were   differently  disposed.    And if at  times its  neighbors   were   distrusted   of  sinister designs,   the  British  people felt no anxiety.   Britain's  strength was believed to be such  that even if attempts were made  to disturb her peaceful activities  by foreign foe, such a one would  soon discover the error of his  way and be  brought to terms.  This war has disillusioned our  people in that respect; our self-  complacency has been rudely disturbed and now at last, when  nearly a whole year of the war  $a^Jay, JuJy /7(  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

The uneasiness of the British  is not of the kind that, leads to  despair.    An  outstanding   trait  of British character is its tenacity of purpose, its steadfastness  in danger, its utter inability to  acknowledge defeat; and therefore the unexpected strength of  the foe has so thoroughly aroused  the British lion  that from now  on the war will be carried on in  a manner that will prove resistless to its foes, whether German  or Turk.

'?m  The movement in the United  ftates of appointing county ag-  iculturists under the provisions,  ff the Smith-Lever Bill is prov-  i'g popular and spreading rapid-  It is a fact conceded by  jany experienced in that direc-  ion that the bulletins of the ex  perimental farms and agricultural colleges do not attain the  results expected from   them in  inducing the farmers to adopt  the later and better methods.  It is rather difficult to understand  the validity of the contention  that such a system of county  agriculturists will not work here,  when it proves so practical with  our neighbors.  ri2  evi  e:<;  )tn|  an  t.i  o: &  A few lines we specially  recommend  Duerrs���������  Jams and Jellies  Huntley & Palmers  ���������Biscuits  Griff en ,& Skelleys  famous gold and  silverbar���������  Canned and dried  fruits  LEESON, DICKIE, GROSS & CO., Ltd.

Politicians at Ottawa do not  take much stock in a despatch  from England hinting that Sir  Richard McBride may become  agent-general for British Columbia in London "if heisnotdrawn  into Federal politics in the meantime." It is within possibility  that Sir Richard may be agent-  general for his native province  in London, because Sir Richard  likes English ways and needs the  money, but the best bettors are  wagering ten to one against hip  being drawn into Federal politics.  Drawing Sir Richard into Feder-  politics would be drawing from  the discard and that is never  satisfactory.  Sir Richard is keen enough to  be an Ottawa statesman, so keen  that he visits Ottawa three times  a year to interview Premier Borden -and Hon. Robert Rogers,  but the chances are all against  him. Premier Borden does not  forget that Sir Richard was at  one time his rival for the Conservative leadership and the Hon.  Bob long ago figured him out as  a size 17 collar and a size 6 head.  Sir Richard did very well as long  as he had his own way in British  Columbia where he was a favorite son, but when the surplus of  promissory notes began to wear  through in spots and a railway  policy, evidently conceived by  Sinbad the Sailor, began to bear  hard on the people and Attorney-  General Bowser began to kick at  doing all the real work and taking all the blame, Sir Richard's  glory faded rapidly.  At present the British Colum-  bia   Legislature   doesn't   know-  where itstands.  Sir Richard says  it is dissolved and Bowser says  it isn't.    On top of all that comes  the affair of the two submarines  in which Sir Richard seems to  have played a lone hand because  he liked the feel of real money.  The good guessers are predicting  that Sir  Richard's  government  will be in good luck if it isn't investigated along the same lines  as the late Manitoba government  is being investigated now. There  is also meat for inquiry- by Sir  Charles Davidson  in   the split-  cheque aspect of the submarine  purchase'which has never been  examined in detail. Which means  that British Columbia not only  has  her own   troubles  but Sir  Richard's too���������a fact which will  naturally   have   a   chastening  effect on his welcome home.  The Borden Government has  had enough trouble with spotted  reputations without invitingmore  by asking Sir Richard McBride  to come in. Sir Richard will be  more safely and comfortably located as agent-general in London  where he can chum up with  Winston Churchill, the first British statesman to notice "the seal  of high destiny on his brow."  On the whole, therefore, Sir Richard's chances of being drawn into Federal politics are negligible  unless of course the Borden Government is fond enough of discards to link itself up with the  troubles of British Columbia.  ���������H.

Bella  Coola  farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  THE REASONS  for this  enviable  condi-  I  tion of affairs   are   obvious  to   anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  DELLA COOLA and the surrounding  country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  rz  >g>-.<^c>^c'><r>"<^<*>-<'><r>~'<*>y>--<^ c~>^<"> g"^  "POLAR  The  Best  Known  and   Popular  Lubricant for  Motor Boats  Its use assures freedom from Carbon deposit  on valves, spark plugs, or in cylinders  IMPERIAL OIL CO.

No manufacturer or wholesalehouse can  afford to let slip the opportunity of increased  sales that public advertising brings.  DEAL ESTATE booms in the  cities have come and gone.  People are beginning to flock to  the country. The North-West  Coast of British Columbia offers  opportunities for all. Did not  know, is no excuse. Investors  should keep posted on developments by reading the "Courier."  Canadian Newspaper Directory for 1915.  It is now nearly a quarter of a  century since Mr. A. McKim,  who established the first independent advertising agency in  ,this country, completed the  rather ambitious task of publishing the first Directory of Canadian publications. The nine successive editions of this valuable  work provide the most complete  and detailed record available of  the growth of Canadian periodicals.  The 1915 edition, of which we  have just received a copy, shows  that the great war has not seriously affected the newspapers of  Canada. While the biifth-rate of  new publications' has received a  check, and the death-rate of y the  weak ones has perhaps.increased  a trifle, most of the leading  papers, particularly the dailies,  show very healthy increases in  circulation. Three metropolitan  dailies have reached or passed  the hundre thousand mark.  A census of the papers listed  and described in the 1915 Directory shows a tofal of over 1575  publications. ,   '  A. McKim, Limited, report the  usual keen demand for the Canadian Newspaper Directory,  which sells at $2. - Its red-banded,  gold-stamped green cover, has  become a familiar sight on the  desks of advertisers, publishers  and business, men everywhere  who are interested in Canada.

The best way to show  that you are in earnest is to  practise it.  Support the "Courier" and you  are doing something for yourself  and your community.  In an article written for the  export number of the "Canada  Lumberman and Woodworker"  the Hon. W. R. Ross says:  "The enormous quantity of  merchantable timber in the Province, the fact that lumber is our  premier industry, the importance of our forest revenue���������all  these considerations combine to  make the marketing of British  Columbia lumber a matter that  demands the closest co-operation  of the Provincial Government.  "Therefore, since it became  evident that the existing markets for our forest products were  hopelessly insufficient, one of the  main duties of the Government  has been to discover the reasons  why, and to set to work,in a  practical way to remedy conditions as far as possible.   ���������  '"Investigation showed, the  need for tariff reciprocity .with  Australia- It revealed the grip  which the shipping companies of  San Francisco and the Pacific  States had gained, by organization, upon the sea-borne lumber  trade, so that British Columbia  was almost' excluded from markets within the Empire that  should be naturally hers. It  showed how little was known in  foreign countries concerning a  mysterious wood described as  Douglas fir. The most grotesque  misconceptions about our timber  were   found   to   be ' prevalent  among some foreign buyers.  Thus two things were clearly revealed���������firstly, ; that a general  advertising campaign to stimulate the demand .for British Co-  ���������lumbia lumber must be carried  on m every accessible foreign  market; secondly, definite action  must be taken to supply the shipping with vessels without which  the commercial expansion of our  lumberingindustry is impossible.  With 350 billion feet of standing  timber and a mill- capacity of  2 1-2 billion feet a year,' stagnation will continue to be inevitable  unless ^oceah transportation is  provided, for only thus can we  relieve our coast and interior  mills from ruinous competition  with each other in the restricted  Western Canadian market."  The government must co-operate with the manufacturers in  advertising our excellent lumber,  assist in securing orders and in  fact do all it can to stimulate and  develop an industry which is one  of the chief factors in the prosperity of the province.  We   want   Canadians to  buy  Canadian material whenever possible, instead of importing pine  from the  United States.    And,  finally, all.'over the world, government   departments,   railroad  boards, large and small importers and the timber trade generally must be  given'systematic  and persistent information, accompanied by exhibits, concerning every way   in   which   our  British Columbia   timbers may  suit their needs, the stocks available and  the  range of prices.  Australia, India, New Zealand,  South Africa, China and Japan  are our natural markets, while  the United Kingdom and Europe  generally .are capable of taking  from us certain products in far  greater quantity than hitherto.  Already we have been   encouraged by new business offerings  from these countries, and though,  through  lack  of shipping,   our  operators have not been able to  take advantage of all these opportunities, it is certain this obstacle will cease to exist as soon  as transportation  becomes normal.    It is but fair to state "that  the   provincial   government   is  making efforts to stimulate and  extend    our   drooping    lumber  trade.  $1 a Year  Published every  Saturday at  BELLA COOLA, B.
